Advocates Balanced Budget
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Corry Westbrook has announced her candidacy for U.S. Representative for Florida’s 8th Congressional District.
Westbrook has pledged to proudly serve all the people of the 8th District, regardless of party affiliation.
She said she will do this by creating jobs while protecting Florida’s most important economic driver, the environment.
Westbrook said she will fight for a balanced budget by eliminating government waste and closing tax loopholes while protecting Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.
She says she’ll work to protect women’s rights, ensuring that women’s concerns are no longer second-class issues in Congress.
Westbrook also will advocate for increased transparency on Capitol Hill to stop special interests from buying politicians and votes at the expense of American citizens.
“I am running for Congress because Floridians deserve a representative who cares about solutions, not rhetoric, and will put the needs of hard working families and small businesses ahead of special interests,” Westbrook said. “I will bring common sense solutions to Congress and work to stop the gridlock. Together – we can do it.”
She formerly served as legislative director for the National Wildlife Federation.
Florida’s 8th Congressional District includes all of Brevard County, as well as all of Indian River County and parts of Orange County.
Bill Posey of Rockledge currently represents the 8th Congressional District.
